The proposed amendment to Rule 43(f) of the Vermont Rules of Civil Procedure clarifies the requirements in actions in the Civil Division of the Superior Court for court appointment of interpreters for persons with limited English proficiency or hearing impairments to ensure compliance with federal law. The amendment is intended to satisfy federal requirements.  Identical provisions will be added to or made applicable in the Family, Probate and Criminal Rules.

The proposed addition of Rule 24(a)(1)(B)(iii) to the Vermont Rules of Appellate Procedure incorporates the language of V.R.C.P. 3(b)(1) regarding qualification for in forma pauperis status to make clear that the same standard applies under both the civil and appellate rules.
